Warning, our democracy is under siege. Our freedom and liberty are at risk. I don't care about political affiliations. When a minority of legislators use extortion to demand changes, we all lose. When the winner is determined by who cares the least about the welfare of our country, we all lose.
Is governance by extortion what our Founding Fathers envisioned? Are we the shining example of democracy for the world when we allow the tyranny of a few to hold the country hostage? I don't remember governance by extortion being discussed in my high school civics class. Fund the government and stop behaving like spoiled 2-year-olds!
